Joakim With Steen is the name behind JOWST. At 15 he developed an interest in punk rock and songwriting. After finishing music producer school, where he also worked as a teacher, Joakim started working as a sound engineer and producer. The project Making a Hit was his first artistic concept of JOWST.

Lyrics:

English

They read me like a book that is open,

While punching on a bag and I’m choking.

I’m Looking for a sign, while they’re stepping on my

Mind, but I hide behind a simpleminded notion.

I try act cool, but I’m boiling,

Feeling like a fool, that was chosen.

Try to keep myself calm, while my head is getting

Bombed, really need to get that good vibe going.

 

So when it’s all or nothing,

I put my nerves in the coffin.

So when it’s all or nothing,

I put my nerves in the coffin.

 

I’m gonna kill that voice in my head,

I don’t care if I’m falling,

I’m gonna grab the moment.

I’m gonna kill that voice in my head,

I don’t care if I’m falling,

I’m gonna grab the moment.

 

Getting kinda heavy on my shoulders,

Try to stand straight, but I’m boneless.

Gotta pocket full of prose, while I’m walking on my

Toes, and I’m coping with a map that is roadless.

Got eyes in my neck, but I’m absent,

Quiet in a corner seeking action.

I wanna be bold, but I’m only getting old,

I need to stop drowning in distractions.

 

So when it’s all or nothing,

Better get that good vibe buzzing.

So when it’s all or nothing,

I get that good vibe buzzing.

 

I’m gonna kill that voice in my head,

I don’t care if I’m falling,

I’m gonna grab the moment.

I’m gonna kill that voice in my head,

I don’t care if I’m falling,

I’m gonna grab the moment.

 

Deep, in that beat,

There’s a calling for that leap.

Got no con–trol, but I know, there’s a fire in my soul.

Hidden deep, in that beat, there’s a calling for that leap.

Got no con–trol, but I know, there’s a fire in my soul.

 

I’m gonna kill that voice in my head,

I don’t care if I’m falling,

I’m gonna grab the moment.

I’m gonna kill that voice in my head,

I don’t care if I’m falling,

I’m gonna grab the moment.
